Incomparable Groupthink

There have been an increasing number of episodes over the last couple of years that have left me more angry than thoughtful or entertained.

What it comes down to is this: there seem to be more and more ignorant, uneducated takes and misunderstandings or misrepresentations, and the group just goes along with it. It’s like listening to Stella Zinman (Sarah Chalke) from HIMYM describe why she hated Star Wars, except instead of having someone push back, everyone nods along and is like, “Yeah, why do they act like the talking bear is contributing?”

I think it’s time for me to check out. At least when ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey makes a boneheaded take (or a whole season of ‘em), you can expect him to address it in a future video. No such mea culpas from an Incomparable panel.

Great show: expunge the word “like”

Love this show, the host and guests; however, the use of “like” as every third word is fatiguing. I suppose this is how people talk today, but at this point, it’d be great to expunge “like” from our vocabulary (even when it’s appropriate).

Also, ending every sentence with a rising inflection is so tiresome.
